WildBrain Announces Another Round of Hiring for Sonic Prime

WildBrain, the animation studio behind Sonic Prime, is seeking to hire more people for the show’s production. They are seeking CG FX Lead, a CG FX artist, and a Previs Artist. Potential applicants can apply here.

We won’t speculate too much regarding what this could mean regarding the show’s production. We know it’s scheduled for next year, and the show has been in some form of production since at least late 2020. Perhaps this is for the show’s second half (as Netflix often releases shows in multiple chunks) or an unannounced second season. Or maybe they are merely dealing with turnover.

Regardless, we’ll encourage everyone not to read too much into this.

Ian Flynn Consulting on Sonic Prime

We’ve known for a little while that Sonic comics scribe Ian Flynn has at least been informed about Sonic Prime’s production since before it was publicly announced. We now have a better idea as to the extent of his involvement in the show’s production, thanks to a tweet by Man of Action writer and artist Duncan Rouleau.

He confirmed that Flynn has been consulting on the project and “has been invaluable.” This confirms that, at the very least, Man of Action is actively seeking input from creators who have experience with the franchise. Here’s hoping that bodes well for Sonic Prime’s quality!

Sonic Prime is being produced by Man of Action and Wildbrain, and is expected to hit Netflix sometime next year. Thanks goes to Alex Hedgefox over on our Discord server for the news tip!
